Sun to detail security response guarantees

SAN FRANCISCO--Sun Microsystems will take new a step "in the next week or so" to try to press for more secure software, the company's No. 2 exec said Monday.

"It is increasingly imperative that all companies that deliver technology take active responsibility for how secure they are," said Sun President Jonathan Schwartz, speaking at the Veritas Vision conference here. "Any company simply delivering technology and wishing their customers well is going to be viewed as irresponsible."

It's not clear exactly what Schwartz has in mind, but it won't just be a call to arms. A company representative said the move will involve actual technology from the company.
